Running with: Helen Macnair and Sarah Rimmer
Q. What do you consider to be the most important issue facing the Ward you would be elected to represent?
A. I've been a resident, a local business woman, a mother and a community member in Gosford West Ward since 1999.
I have a deep love for our spectacular natural environment, from our beaches, to our national parks, our farm lands, to our fisheries, oyster farms and our heritage coastal seaside townships.
I'm a passionate and active local resident, a volunteer and coffee shop owner, currently employing 17 staff including three adult apprentices.
I'm an active local resident and small business operator with a strong connection to the community in Gosford West Ward.
Q. What do you consider to be the most important issue facing the Central Coast Local Government Area?
I believe in building our local economy, providing real and meaningful long-term local jobs, preserving and enhancing our local natural beauty and tourist attractions, long-term planning for infrastructure, including better public transport, better education and an international quality university on the Central Coast.
Just this year to assist struggling young kids, I have given 96 kids free cooking classes.
I have also given over 10 teenagers free barista training, to help them find jobs in the hospitality industry.
Q. How would you, if elected to Council, set about addressing that issue for (a) your Ward, (b) the region?
I promise to bring to my role as an independent councillor, open ears, an open mind and heart, professionalism, transparency, dedication and first and foremost the best interests for our community and the future of our region.
I will ensure Central Coast Council is a customer service oriented, accountable, professional and transparent organisation, serving its residents and using our resources for the best long term outcomes for our community.
I'm hard working, diligent, honest and approachable.
I will be a true representative for your needs and I will strive to ensure Central Coast Council works for our community's best interests now and in the planning for the future.
